Furlough ends, Echo can help you today!!

Crunch time for 17,000 Northamptonshire workers as furlough ends.

If you or your family members are looking for work after your Furlough has finished please call your local Echo Office for a range of positions with immediate starts!  We are looking for people who are available straight away with many positions becoming permanent.

Up to 17,000 workers in Northamptonshire face a testing autumn as the government’s furlough scheme closes on Thursday (September 30).

Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme in March 2020 as a tool to protect jobs during lockdown.

The measures were extended twice but time finally runs out this week with nearly five percent of the county’s estimated 362,000 workforce still furloughed.

Most are in manufacturing, retail and service sectors — and many are over 50, which could be an obstacle to finding work despite more vacancies being on offer than at any time in the last 20 years.

Free haircuts in Kettering if you have a job interview!

Kettering hairdressers offering free trims for those with job interviews!

Kettering hairdressers is introducing a free ‘trim and tidy’ for those with upcoming job interviews as furlough ends today (Thursday).

Family-run Sorelle Salon, which recently opened at The Yards in Market Street, wants to give back to the community who have welcomed their new business into the area.

The salon is run by co-owners Antonia Gallucci and her sister Luisa, who are bringing in the free service for the unemployed in preparation for job interviews.

The initiative see people given a free basic ladies or men’s dry cut and tidy in preparation for a job interview to help prospective candidates look, and most importantly, feel their best in front of interviewers.

Antonia said: “Part of the process of preparing for your interview is feeling confident with your outfit and how you’ll come across to your prospective employers.

“Whilst appearances aren’t everything, we want our clients and community to feel like they can be confident and feel like a million dollars for their interviews.

“It’s easy to put pampering on hold when things get tight and so we want people to feel put together and refreshed ready for their interviews.”

The salon is asking that those with an interview to contact them via their Facebook page or call them on 01536 660466 to book in during the sessions which will be held on Wednesdays between 9am and 11am.

They are asking for proof of interview in the form of an email or letter to secure your cut.

Antonia added: “With furlough ending on September 30, there may be fears of job security and many looking for a new role.

“We want to offer the security that you don’t need to worry about over-grown or unruly hair ahead of your interviews.”
